2018 Sac-Con

Author: Luke Cheng


Sac-Con came to the Sacramento Convention Center this past weekend. This one day con was on Sunday and is really geared towards those who are into comics. The large main room was filled with vendors - many of which had boxes and boxes of comic books to search through. As a kid, I loved comic books, and this is the con I'd be all over as a youngster! Sadly, I forgot to bring my list of Uncanny X-Men needs with me this time around. But that just left me more time to get some photo and video coverage of the event!


Besides the books, vendors were selling toys, memorabilia, and artwork. I saw a lot of great original artwork that I would have loved to take home with me. As always, there is a huge variety of things to see and do whenever you go to a con. Besides the main room at Sac-Con, there were multiple panel rooms, a video game room, and a card game room. I enjoyed the fact that each room was relatively close together so I didn't have to walk all around the convention center to get from one point to another.


Found near the rear of the main event room were the special guests. Artists and actors were the primary guests that attendees could meet. Ron Lim, who had an awesome run at Marvel comics in the 90's, was there. I loved his work on the Avengers, and you can see his rendition of Thanos behind him.


There was plenty of cosplay on display at Sac-Con. It was awesome to see everyone get into the spirit of it - we had really young kids to adults who came dressed as their favorite pop culture icons. Sac-Con is definitely a family event, and there were lots of families out seeing all the awesome things for sale.


I was really impressed with the cosplay this time out at Sac-Con. Though it's a smaller con, the cosplayers came out swinging with some very elaborate and accurate representation of their characters. Above is Steph with her Barb from Stranger Things cosplay. She looks so good!


Sac-Con was a ton of fun and I'm so glad I went to it. This is a con that I'd highly recommend attending if you're at all into comic books. It's not as expensive as some of the other cons that are out there, and being only one day, it's a great time! CLICK HERE if you'd like to see the rest of the photos from my time at Sac-Con!
